I live in Kent with my husband, toddler Tilly (henceforth known as Monkey) and another baby due in November. We have two cats, Duncan and Lady Macbeth, and four chickens who kindly lay us eggs daily. We live in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs. I enjoy reading, knitting and cooking. I'm trying to be a bit 'greener' (not sure how successfully), and to be a gentle parent. Extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping don't freak me out, we use cloth nappies and try to follow some of the ideals of Attachment Parenting. If that sounds as if I know what I'm doing, I don't! I am also a psychotherapist with an interest in Focusing-oriented therapy, and I have a small private practice in the area.
My next project, a tank top in a silvery-grey Sirdar Snuggly Bamboo yarn. It was going well, I completed the back, but then I started getting complacent and didn't read the pattern closely enough for the front. Cue two lots of unpicking. Now I'm back on track but running out of yarn... it will have to wait until I go to John Lewis on Friday. The tank top is a present for an imminently-due new baby. It's another one from the Sirdar 'Sweet Peas' pattern book.
